Furthermore, a Clash Royale mini-tournament got its champion the previous week, where Dominik bested the competition of nearly 80 players.
Favorites prevailed in EA FC Mobile
The first round of the group stage in EA FC Mobile finished without any upsets or surprises. In the first match, Suh12 defeated Lazar from Montenegro and justified the role of favorite. The same happened in the second duel of that day, where Kayozz snatched a victory from Destroyer after three matches. Even though he had internet problems, the Bosnian contest went into the hands of a favored Kayozz.
The third match was one of the most watched and most exciting ones as Shaq and Tocc battled it out for the first win in the group stage. They played for the umpteenth time, it was a replay of the finals of the Southeast Conference of the BFL, and the victory was taken by the BFL champion, the Serbian player Shaq. And in the derby between clan comrades, from the United League, Nerko and Ivand played 4 matches, after which Ivand from Macedonia emerged as the winner.
Great start for Novo and Brstimir
The first round of the group stage in EA FC 24 also didn’t have any upsets. Three out of four scheduled matches were played as one player withdrew from the league. Namely, Haris decided not to participate anymore and his place was taken by NemanjaLS92 a day ago. His match against Cyber Fico will be played subsequently.
In the first match of the group stage, Brstimir took on Croatian player CLA TH3Prod1gy and that was an easy win for our veteran. He took down his opponent with a swift 2:0 victory. The same happened in Novo’s matchup where, with the same result, the Bosnian defeated fellow countryman Esad1memic.
In another match, CLA Marac justified the role of favorite and defeated newly joined player OlleDobrinho.
Z10 is continuing the dominant performance in CS2
The defenders of the title in CS2, Zero Tenacity, opened the group stage with a dominant win. They are the biggest favorites for winning the championship again and they are showing it. Even though they were losing at halftime with 5:7 for team The Suspects, they snatched a 13:10 victory in the end. Nemanha was the best player of the game with 23 frags and a 1.53 K/D ratio.
RUR Esports won their match against Salamander on Ancient with a 7:5 score at half and finished with 13:7 letting the opponent get only two rounds in the second half. The determining round happened at 11:7 where RUR didn’t have a good buy but managed to outsmart Salamander and take the win.
Jake Bube vs Partizan Esports was the third match of the day, where Partizan defeated one of the invited teams by 13:8. The best player of the match was Kind0 with 24 kills.
Last but not least, Megnatos was successful against their opponent, team Bonanza with a 13:10 score on Mirage. Mwlky was the one who brought his team to victory with an astonishing 32 frags.
Next week we will find out who will be the first team to advance to the finals and who will be the first eliminated. Partizan and Z10 have a chance to secure a spot in the finals, while we say goodbye to either Bonanza or Salamander. Stay tuned!
Dominik is the Clash Royale champion!
The first stage of the Clash Royale competition was an in-game tournament lasting 60 minutes. The most famous names from the Clash Royale scene from the region took part in the tournament. Unfortunately, greats like Hezzy, Arkan, and Novak did not qualify for the next stage of the competition (Double Elimination). It is worth noting that Arkan and Novak are the winners of previous A1AL seasons.
In the bracket phase of the competition, we followed the dominance of Dominik and Enis in the upper bracket until the final itself. In the lower bracket, Marsel Smocker showed himself in the best light, winning the final of the lower bracket, where he played against Enis to meet the finalist from the upper bracket (Dominik). However, Enis once again showed why he is one of the best players from the region and successfully defeated Marcel Smocker. In the final itself, we had a repeated meeting between Dominik and Enis. The fight was tight, but Dominik the match and the prize pool worth 150 EUR.
